Former Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is one of a few players that have seen big gains in the Hall of Fame voting in recent years but on MLB Network’s Top 10 Right Now, Helton seems to be a bit underrated.
The future looks murky for the 26-year-old outfielder after he was not afforded any major league playing time in 2020 18. Yonathan Daza (140 points, 11 ballots) Yonathan Daza has the longest Rockies tenure of any PuRP on this year’s list by almost three years, having signed out of Venezuela way back in 2010.

The Colorado Rockies strength in recent years has been their starting rotation.

This offseason has been another quiet one for the Colorado Rockies, both in terms of personnel moves and communication with fans and media. With that, there are plenty of questions about the Rockies as spring training draws ever closer.
